2022 | Cristóbal Gracia
Cristóbal Gracia (Yale School of Art 2022) mimicked certain work methods of Henry Moore during his residency at the Henry Moore Foundation in the summer of 2022. Gracia was interested in Moore’s use of maquettes—both in the studio as well as exhibition spaces—to visualize how the larger sculptures would function when installed. Gracia also explored using natural materials. Rather than incorporating rocks or bones as Moore had done, he constructed temporary maquettes from eggshells and tangerine peels.
